Funky Eyewear

In my previous post, "How To AccessorEYES," I discussed using eyewear as a tool to add personality to your looks. I wear prescription lenses, and in my early days I wasn't a fan of wearing glasses.  I have since learned to not only embrace my opticals, but my eyewear is now a carefully considered part of my wardrobe.

I own several pair of prescription glasses and due to my RX, they can be very costly, so I do the following to help alleviate the financial burden.
  1. I incorporate eyewear into my budget and treat it as an expense. 
  2. My insurance allows me one new pair of prescription lenses per year, and a new pair of frames every other year, so I take advantage of those benefits religiously.
  3. I budget enough money in my Flexible Spending Account to cover expenses that exceed what my insurance covers.
  4. I get my eyes examined every year, and if my prescription changes only slightly, I will forego updating all my eyeglasses with the new prescription.
Now onto the good stuff. I've been lusting after these Alain Mikli frames for quite some time now.  I purchased them from my friends over at Omega Optical.

The Four Boroughs

I recently designed a new t-shirt-"The Four Boroughs."  It pays homage to 4 of the 5 boroughs in New York City.(Area code of Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island)

One Dress Three Ways

The  basic maxi dress.  The simplicity of its design makes it particularly versatile.  I'll be mixing and matching this all summer long.  There are endless styling options for this type of dress, and I have included 3 in this post.

This dress actually has spaghetti straps and a cutout back. With spaghetti straps, I generally layer a tank or other shirt underneath to conceal my bra straps.

My New Favorite Pump

The classic pointed toe pump is a staple in the closets of many women.  Some higher priced favorites include:
I love a good shoe as much as any fabulous fashionista; however, some of those options are not budget-friendly.  I have a love affair with shoes, but I also have to be practical, so I opt for versions that are easier on the pockets.

My new favorite pump is "Tatiana" by Nine West.  It's high enough to be super sexy, but comfortable enough to wear all day, and not too much toe cleavage, which I'm not a fan of.  

And you know when I find something I like, and it's affordable, I acquire it in multiple colors/patterns/textures.

I have black pony hair,

Spring Flowers

Spring has been hit or miss, in terms of the weather, but that hasn't stopped me from incorporating Spring colors and themes into my wardrobe.

I love these floral print shoes.  The colors allow me to pair them with many things.
 Shoes by Halogen.
